About this listing

The space

Ranch style "Hacienda Home" in the heart of Miami. The Amanda room has a queen size bed with an orthopedic mattress, closet space, desk, drawers and a 32” flat screen TV-WIFI. This room has been recently upgraded. Our home has a fully equipped eat-in kitchen and we love to cook, and you are welcome to use kitchen as needed. Living area of our airy great room includes, the kitchen, dining, living, and family rooms with a 60" flat screen TV/cable. Our home is on a lavishly landscaped acre with beautiful tropical fruit trees, flowers and a vegetable garden in season.
We are close to some of the best restaurants and movie theaters in town. If shopping is your thing, we are close to some of the best shopping in Miami, Dadeland Mall, The Falls, Merrick Park, Dolphin Mall, and more. We are less than two miles away from the world renowned Baptist Hospital, less than five miles to South Miami and Larkin Hospitals less than 6 miles to Miami Children’s and Kendall Regional Hospitals. We have easy access to all major expressways in the area. Surrounding us are several walking trails, local bicycle routes, parks and The Killian Greens Golf Club, “open to the public", within walking distance. We are 15 miles from the entrance of the Everglades, 25 miles from the Florida Keys, 16 miles to Miami Beach and 10 miles to Key Biscayne. For those interested in flying, we are 4 miles from the Tamiami Airport. Our home offers a beautiful pool area with large gazebo, lounge chairs, outdoor furniture, BBQ and smoker.
Greater Miami is very spread out. Our advice to get the most out of your trip is to rent your own car. Car rental at the airport is more expensive than renting at a national car rental location outside the airport. We have several locations within 3 miles of our home and can give you information if requested. If renting a car is not your thing we have easy access to public transportation. The local bus stop is .2 mile from our home about a 12 minute easy walk. If you need further information on the public transportation system go to (URL HIDDEN)
There is plenty of free parking in our secure private gated driveway. I am a native Miamian's therefore know all that our fine city has to offer. Both my husband and I are fluent in English and Spanish. We are available for taking you shopping or dropping you off and picking you up at your destination of choice*(URL HIDDEN) At Killian Acre we have had travelers from all parts of the world and something we have found most rewarding is cooking and sharing recipes from our countries. I cook my Cuban dishes and our guest theirs. In this relaxed environment we really learn how much we are all alike. Of course this is not required, it’s just something we enjoy and our guests are welcome to participate.

Karen and Hiram's place is amazing. The neighborhood is very safe, perfect for doing some walking and/or running. The bus stop is two blocks away. It's 50 minutes to an hour to get downtown by public transportation, but buses and train are confortable and efficient. I rented a bedroom with a private bathroom, both of them inmaculately clean! There's a nice pool sorrounded by a beautiful patio and garden where I could excersice, relax or study. They provide everything in essentials and cleaning products as well as coffee, tea and spices for cooking. Doggie Tango is a very educated and sweet poodle that lives inside the house. I felt right at home in this place and probably would repeat my stay!

This was simply the best ever place we have ever stayed in on all levels. It's spotlessly clean, great bed, wifi and all the mod cons PLUS they are amazing people. They really helped us in ways you cannot imagine. I have travelled all over the world since I was 15 but this was simply an amazing experience. If you are going to Miami don't hesitate because you won't regret it. Esto ha sido el mejor lugar. Son gente maravilloso. La casa es super limpio con WIFI fantástico, buenísimo lugar y buenísimo energía. Karen y Hiram son special. SI visitan Miami sera lo mejor lugar. Yo he viajado el mundo entero pero este casa esta mágico. Hace me caso! Gracias Hiram y Karen para todo de corazón.

If you want a place that you are truly relax and enjoying, then book Karen's home. We extended one week. We have our private bathroom and large space to work. There is a large backyard with beautiful view. Karen and Hiram are very hospitality and helpful. We talked the different culture,politicas etc. they helped us a lot. We also had a happy time with their granddaughter. High recommend to others.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Amanda Room at Karen and Hiram's for 4 months during our medical school rotations. We loved our time here and we were made to feel like family. Karen often invited us to join in on her big family dinners. We used the pool and the outdoor area frequently. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone staying in the area.

Fantadtic experience! Truly beautiful house. Very clean. Very warm energetically. I think this is our best Airbnb experience so far. The host caring but without disturbing privacy. Great location. And swimming pool was just a cool addition.

We are semi-retired and love meeting new people. Our children are all out of the nest leaving us with tons of energy to burn. We are active and energetic, love the outdoors, long walks, bike riding, working out and riding our motorcycles. Our kitchen is used daily since we love cooking and eating good food. Of course being from Miami and Cuba we love a tropical style of living, the beach, water sports, tropical fruits, exotic plants and flowers. My husband and I also love music and art , we enjoy local concerts and support the local art community.
